clarificati clarification. they have a list of items one of which they climb a tree this tree is gone they can't climb it anymore. the san francisco rec and park department is using popular programs like playgrounds improvements 0 to cover the nap agenda to get away from trees that are non-native. we see things about trees being removed. how xhiventd is that when you see a bill of rights issue. to which the proponent it proposing that kids climb a tree what a wonderful thing that is. my son grew up in san francisco
i'd take him up to mount davidson there's p was a tree i'd run a rope to make a swing it was a wonderful plays for him to swing back and forth. that trees is nonetheless there and no other kid can go up and play on this tree. it was destroyed by relationship around the basis of the trunk and it's destroying that tree the tree fell over about 9 months ago. it's a 4r50shd tree. it's unfortunate but long and short i request you consider exploring the children's bill of rights with the caveat that there should be some consistent working with the policies that the policies that do state is key what policies are public
support this initiative and what policies might be at odds for them. thank you >> thank you. >> thank you. the next 3 speakers (calling names) in any order. come on up carolyn >> overhead please. i don't know. there we go >> i'm the san francisco alliance president i'm carolyn johnson. i love the bill of rights for children in the section wondering in nature areas for the right to wonder in natural spaces. my concern is that's much less
possibly then when i was raising my children. this is a sign that's near the parking lot in pining park. it instructs people to stay on the designated trail. there are many signs along there that says that. for example, this trail >> i need you to speak into the microphone. >> it's not designated it's not open the map it presumably is something people are not allowed to go on. the areas in the common where my children used to play are off limits. that's not a designated trail so therefore they're not allowed to go there. that and had come up too well,
did it. this is a picture of the north side of pine lake park. if you're on that trail there this is adjacent to the lake on the north side and there are fences on both sides. so it's literally not possible to get off the trail in that area of the park and it's discouraging for anyone who wishes to do so. here's another sign saying state law stay on designated trades. this is the trail we took our children up to near our home. and by the way, pipe lake and the trail are in a short distance from my home. and now there's a sign right >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> at the storm drains to the sign has a list of rules stay on
designated trail and below is a pesticide application soors areas are not educational anymore. i hope that those practices will be reversed. it is more and more difficult for children to wonder around and it would be great if we could all raise a bunch of accidents in san francisco >> thank you. >> leann and anna. >> i'm leann i'm not jennifer bailey's but i'm a mom and have two small boys and have chosen to raise our kids in the city and want to sty in the city.
we're committed to staying here. i took time from managing a small business owner r small business today to support what this organization is doing. having the ability to run all around outdoor and without fences not within playground i love them but the ability to run around outside in a city environment makes san francisco a special city. the idea you can go into the presidio or golden gate park won u run as fast as you can and they love that. this is an important program. thank you. thank you >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> morning commissioners general manager i'm anna i
manage policies at the park alliances i'm here on behalf of that to support of the children's outdoor bill of rights. we hope that it are inform other cities. i applaud my colleague for helping with this. we're really exfoliated it's before the commission today and hope you'll support it thank you. thank you >> anyone else who wants to make a public comment will. public comment is closed commissioners >> thank you, commissioner lo it. >> i want to commend all you as to someone who is currently raising two small children in the city there's a profoundly
difference we're very blasz blessed to be able to comment ourselves for an urban experience for our children and make sure they know how important nature is to our lives. i look forward to supporting this >> knew commissioner leo. i guess it's a question to the general manager if we endorse this wasn't is the terms of operations what do we do you different by exploring this >> commissioner your exploring a principle this department has long held dear. we want to get our kids outside and we're blessed with 4 thousand acres of open space where we've got over a thousand acres of trails and nature areas where our kids can explore and
appreciate nature. this is really mostly a campaign to make people more aware the right of our children to be outside and play. this is nothing new for us this is one of our core values we hold dear. what's really great about this all of the open space agencies in the city not only your rec and park department but national presidio and organization for san francisco we're all 50u7b9 together to make sure our kids are outside to enjoy nature it's a balance. more of the same.
